DCOP Opare Addo refused to hand over as directed-N/S boss
The acting National Security Coordinator, Major General Francis Adu Amanfo (rtd), has justified why the Ashanti Regional Security Coordinator, DCOP Opare Addo, was forcefully removed from office.
According to him, DCOP Opare Addo had refused to hand over to a new person who was recently appointed to take over from him.
Some individuals associated with the disbanded vigilante group, the Delta Force, were arrested for allegedly attempting to forcibly remove the Regional Security Coordinator from his office last week Tuesday.
They allegedly handcuffed the man and said they were instructed to bring him to Accra.
The DCOP said he was manhandled by the persons who forcefully removed him from his office.
But reacting, Mr. Adu Amanfof said: “The bottom line of all of this is that Opare Addo had a contract with National Security and for four years he was the regional liaison for the National Security. His term of the contract has expired. It was not renewed because of non-performance and his own criminal activities”, he said.
